Wow, that works!
Is the background image one of yours as well? I like the fresh and dried muddy effect on the models.

Very nice work, not only on the model, but i like how the light and colours in the diorama and the background matches up.

Cheers

You better try again... again and again...
That came out well. The background and angle are Great. A lot of time lighting is off or the angle of focus on the background vs. the model don't match. This is cool.

Can you tell me more about the rover? Which manufacturer, the scale etc. I think we use them here locally too. Its going to be replaced soon, thus i might keep a kit for future project

Matt,

Love the color blending from the dio to the background. I don't have photo shop yet. Is it expensive and was it time comsuming to get these results?

Thx, Ski.

Matt,

Very cool. Before you built the kit did you have the back drop already chosen? It seems to work perfectly.

Looks really good, on the first sight - like a real photo!
But... is it possible to reduce the saturation of the background?
In my opinion the grass in the foreground should have -nearly- the same green as the darker green grass in the bg. Perhaps this works better.

greetings...

Very slick Matt! If you muted/muddied the bg colors a bit it would be completely seemless
